Preparations for the 2012 Pietenpol/Hatz Fly-in the weekend of July 19-22 are in full swing and chapter members and others willing to volunteer are needed in the coming weeks. In particular, help is needed on the July 14th work day removing and cleaning up some recently downed trees and with hangar and kitchen preparation. The wood pile by the fire pit needs to be split and stacked as well.
Volunteer “opportunities” during the fly-in itself include meal ticket and t-shirt sales, shifts to collect for and distribute attendance buttons, meal preparation, serving and clean-up starting Friday morning and helpers for fuel sales. There is always trash pick-up too and trash chuckers are always needed on the garbage barge throughout the weekend. Bring your gloves!
Volunteer sign-up sheets will be available in the Chapter Hangar starting at the monthly meeting on Tuesday, July 3rd. Be sure to sign up and to coerce your aviation-minded friends to help as well.
Detailed information for those attending the fly-in can be found HERE or at the link in the left column. We encourage all those attending and especially those flying in or camping to read the entire thing, then ask us if you have additional questions. E-mail the webmaster HERE.
